Teaching with Twitter



Overview: This post from TeachHUB shares a variety of ways to use Twitter to enhance learning.  Though not mentioned, social media literacy instruction can also form the basis of Twitter use in the classroom. Here are some activities that caught my eye:

  • Make a class news feedA class feed can be topical (relating to a current area of study), or administrative, providing updates on assignments, learning tips, or other useful info for students.
  • Tweet student questions Students tweet their questions during a class lecture for later review
  • Connect with experts Students can chat with experts by Tweeting them.
